Epic Timelapse Video Spanning Across the Globe

By fotosiamo on October 18th 2012

Words and still photos cannot really describe how epic this timelapse video is. Reid Gower/Video Sapien’s globe-trotting video, Natural Phenomenon, is probably one of the best timelapse videos in recent memory, and surprisingly, this was the first time that Reid attempted this type of film-making.

Reid traveled all over the globe with a Canon 5D mkII, Nikon D3, and GoPro Hero2. Some of the locations he filmed at include Alaska, Austria, San Francisco, Czech Republic, Turkey, and Seattle. And yes, he even had timelapse video in the stratosphere which was taken during the filming of GoPro HD: GoPro Expedition Alaska.
